Need Savvy Blogging Help

This blog is to ask the advice of my bloghood here at wordpress. After three successful careers (yes I am grateful to the Universe), I am re-inventing myself once again as an artist and writer.  (My writing has been published in regional newspapers and magazines, and at my first art show, I sold 5 of 17 of my oil paintings which I am told is not bad.) This time I am on the clear path of intention. 

What I don’t know… which place would be better for me to post my art and writing.  What about Yessy?  I want to be in a space that is an artist community where I can feel the support but also have a marketplace to sell my creative efforts.  Is a website of my own design enough? I would like to have a lot of control (website design templates that are attractive and customizable because I am lame with code) and be able to reach interested buyers. Doubt it since marketing is so important.  Is what I am doing here on wordpress enough with the right web-working… links elsewhere?  Help blog family!

    Thanks Jessica. I think I meant Etsy… not Yessy. I have checked out that site and it seems good. Just wondered if it was my best choice. Love your work BTW.

    Hi there! Surface Earth gave me the link to your post and I have to say that Etsy has been great!!! It is the only site I sell my originals on, but I do have many other portfolio only sites. I would like to recommend Artwanted.com, AbsoluteArts.com and MyArtProfile.com – all are free (you can have additional features with a small member fee on Artwanted and absolute). I can’t speak personally, but I have heard some complaints about Yessy that have made me shy away from that site. You have beautiful work that will do great on Etsy!
